The link between grazing, teeth, health & performance

Did you know that by feeding at high level you increase the chance of your horse developing dental problems? And that this is often the cause of behavioural issues, poor performance, weight loss, colic and more…?

Naturally a horse gets most of his diet by grazing at low level. When your horse’s head is low, the lower jaw drops forward and the upper and lower teeth are then in correct alignment for grinding. When forced to eat at high level, the teeth do not wear as they should and often develop excessive hooks. This will cause tension and pressure in your horse’s TMJ joint, potentially leading to the problems above.
